Sew Grateful Week

Have you heard what Debi is doing over at My Happy Sewing Place? If not, you should get over there and check it out right now! There are giveaways, tutorials, patterns, and all sorts of things going on, in a way to say thank-you to the blogging community as a whole! It's all a part of Sew Grateful Week :)

If it wasn't for online resources, I wouldn't be sewing myself! (Not that I seem to be doing much sewing recently...) There are so many great free patterns and tutorials out there, not to mention all the wonderful people willing to give you a hand if you ask. So far in my short sewing life, I have:

  • Used Casey's tutorial for shaped pockets on a skirt
  • Made a Sorbetto top from a free pattern
  • Won some awesome leopard print chiffon from Suzy Sewing
  • Won a bunch of goodies from All the Whimsical Things (Including some green dye that I put to use recently... results will be posted tomorrow!)
  • Made a croquis after being inspired by a whole bunch of brave bloggers!

And that list doesn't include all the wonderful things I'm planning to make! A frock by friday, Casey's circle skirt and sundress tutorials, Gertie's gathered skirt tutorial... the list goes on. I only wish I had more time to appreciate all these amazing resources!!!

But for now I'm off to do a form of the less enjoyable sewing (to me anyway!) - I'm hemming curtains. 4 giant velvet curtains. Wish me luck!

What are you Sew Grateful for this week?

  1. I'm loving sew grateful week too! I had never seen a Frock by Friday before, I particularly love that stripy number. In fact, there are so many great links here that I included this post in my Sew Grateful post! Thanks, Beata!
